Paper Abstract

Kinoform lenses avoid the absorption losses from a comparable refractive lens by removing all material causing redundant 2π phase shifts. Such optics allow high resolution imaging with a theoretical 94% focusing efficiency. While fabrication of kinoform lenses for two-dimensional focusing is difficult, standard lithographic processes can be utilized to fabricate optics in silicon which produce a line focus. By putting two single-dimension kinoform lenses in a crossed-pair arrangement, a two-dimensional spot is achieved. First attempts at imaging with a crossed pair of kinoform lenses are presented.
